New Delhi: Following last year's bitter child custody battle between a Bengali couple and the Norway child care authorities, another case has come to light. A couple from Hyderabad has been arrested for allegedly scolding their child for bed wetting. The External Affairs Ministry has stepped in and asked the consular officer there of offer all help to the couple. Satyanarayana is still puzzled about why did the Norwegian authorities send his son and daughter in law into Police remand? He doesn't know what to tell his two grandchildren who have been living with them for the past one week. "The family was cleared by the local Norwegian child welfare authorities earlier, so on what grounds have they been arrested now," the arrested couple's neighbour said. IT professional Chandrasekhar and his wife Anupama Vallabhaneni moved to Norway 18 months ago. In February this year when their elder son Sai Sriram told his teacher that his father scolded him for bed-wetting, the school filed a complaint against the couple and the kids were sent to foster care by Norwegian authorities. Finally after six weeks of investigation the child services gave the couple a clean chit and the children were reunited with the parents and they returned to India. But this November Chandrashekhar was given a notice to appear at a local Norwegian court. After the hearing on Monday the couple was arrested and sent to remand for five days. Now their family back home in Hyderabad wants the Indian government to intervene. "We were informed by my uncle's neighbours in Oslo that they were arrested and remanded, we are yet to get complete details on Chandrasekhar's arrest," the Chandrashekhar's nephew said. The couple's friends in Norway have now filed an appeal in the court pleading that cultural differences between the two countries be considered and the children be reunited with their parents.
